Read this before you settle on a stem cell or other treatment or therapy in Mexico or elsewhere

E-MAIL Free MS imageNova Cells Institute (NCIM) often gets emails from people who ask about stem cell and other therapies done elsewhere but which have little chance of turning things around for them. Here are some of these treatments along with comments by NCIM experts:

(1) Subcutaneous injections of stem cells to treat serious neurologic and other health challenges, including cancer. COMMENT: Subcutaneously injected stem cells may stimulate production of nerve growth factor or other compounds, but is an iffy way to stimulate healing or regeneration unless one is treating a problem very close to the injection site. Depending on the target tissue or organ, stem cells given by intravenous, intrathecal or other routes is more likely to have the desired therapeutic effect.

(2)  Nova Cells hears from people who have been told that biochemical signals from injured or diseased tissues will attract infused stem cells. This is true but what they aren’t being told is that these signals fade over time or the injected or infuse stem cells typically do not respond fully to them. COMMENT: Nova Cells director of laboratory services, Dr. Abel Pena, created a nontoxic homing/signal amplification (or “beacon”) compound that stimulates damaged or diseased tissues to send out stronger stem cell attractive signals while simultaneously sensitizing stem cells to recognize and respond to these signals. This compound was dubbed, appropriately enough, the “Beacon Factor” and positively no one has it or anything like it but Nova Cells. You can read more about it by clicking this link.

3) Emails occasionally come in from people saying they have been offered some kind of stem cell or other therapy (for a serious or intractable condition) in Mexico or elsewhere for between $1,000-4,000 USD. COMMENT: The old sayings “If it sounds too good to be true, it is” and “caveat emptor” (Buyer beware) certainly applies here. What NCIM has turned up down through the years (with respect to these “medical blue plate specials”) are instances in which: (a) MDs and others gave patients far fewer cells than claimed. In one particular instance, an office worker in a so-called stem cell clinic reported actually seeing a doctor take a vial labelled as containing 5 million umbilical cord stem cells and placing a small quantity from this into each of ten other vials, then administering these to patients who had paid to get 5 million stem cells each; (b) Patients were given “live cell therapy” (embryonic cells from animals typically lambs) but were told  they were getting human umbilical or other adult stem cells: (c) People with advanced, terminal cancer were given low cost treatments that had worked in lab dish or animal studies but bombed out in well designed & executed studies done in humans.

Doing medicine in Mexico is not cheap contrary to what some people think. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous doctors and clinics that have come up with “cost cutting measures” (like those above) who do a grave disservice to the patients they purport to help.

Abel at lab cabinetNova Cells is able to offer economically priced care, i.e., typically 30% less than other stem cell medicine operations, because it cut out the “middle men”, e.g., professional marketers and public relations people, and was able to get top flight MDs including surgeons on board who believe profits must take a backseat to getting people well. And, its head of laboratory services, Dr. Abel Pena (photo on right), who was trained (in part) by a leading US stem cell biologist, insists on processing & counting all stem cells himself and then priming or programming them (to become cell types that are more likely to effect healing or restoration in a given patient than unprimed stem cells). Dr. Pena personally handles all aspects of stem cell and Beacon Factor processing so as to insure that everything is done to the highest cGMP (manufacturing) standards and the patient is getting exactly what he or she paid for.

Stem cell homing = Better clinical outcomes

Stem cell homing makes a big difference in clinical outcomes. Watch this short video to learn more about how Nova Cells pulls this off.

You’ve got to get stem cells to their target tissue or organ. No one but Nova Cells has a way to reliably pull this off.

DART BOARD - Free MorguefileIf you ever played the game of darts or used a crossbow you know the goal is to hit your target. In the world of stem cell medicine the same holds true. Virtually all stem cell therapy clinics and hospitals infuse or inject stem cells and count on biochemical signals produced by damaged or diseased tissues to “get the darts” (stem cells) to target. This works in principle, yes, but likely winds up with more stem cells lodged in non-target tissues than in the tissues or organ needing healing or restoration. This diminishes responses and outcomes as you would expect.

But what if you switch on a homing system in the stem cells and amplify the signals in diseased or damaged tissues or organs? More “darts” or “biologic missiles” (stem cells) will hit their mark!

No stem cell clinic or such anywhere has a biologic “guidance & homing signal amplification system” that helps get stem cells to target. None, that is, but Nova Cells Institute which pulls this off thanks to its proprietary Beacon Factor. You can read more about the Beacon Factor by clicking this link.

Rapid improvements in vision, walking, mood & cognition for boy with cerebral palsy treated by Nova Cells

NCIM N SIGN - JULY 2013Linda’s little boy has cerebral palsy and has vision, cognitive and walking issues. Within a week of getting primed stem cells & the nontoxic Beacon Factor by Nova Cells Institute doctors (August 2015), Linda shared this with NCIM by email: 

As you know, my boy has really been struggling for a long time with walking and now after his treatment he just gets up and does it!  Today he was even trying to run about. Also, I see signs his vision has improved too. On top of all this, his temperament is so much better and he is no longer easily frustrated and his ability to focus & take on challenging tasks has improved. For instance, today at therapy he put objects like circles, triangles and stars into the right sorting container which left the staff totally blown away! My husband took in all these leaps forward which left him almost in a state of disbelief!  I wish all the parents of children with CP would get them into treatment with your program. Warmest regards to both you and Dr. Abel, and do watch your email for more progress updates and video clips too of our boy. Love, Linda.

NCIM added:

At the hospital, even before we left to take this family back to their hotel in San Diego, the boy was sitting on the floor, then just folded one of his legs and got right up without help from his mom or anyone present. This so amazed the lady that it left her totally wide mouth open. Then at the hotel the boy did it again but this time took about 4 steps and sat down. The mother was simply awed by what was happening.

Emily Johnson: Ten year old with cerebral palsy turned a corner following her NCIM stem cell treatment

Ten year old Emily Johnson was born 16 weeks premature (weighing in at only 1 lb 6 oz.) and sustained nervous system damage later was manifest as an inability to communicate verbally, problems getting about, and seizures. Her doctors diagnosed her as having cerebral palsy. Like many children with CP Emily benefited from use of a walker and various kinds of therapy. In time her seizures abated and she learned to communicate via a speech device. Her parents, Patrick and Justin, wanted more for Emily, of course. Like most other parents of children with CP they went on a quest for therapies (including novel ones) that might reduce or remediate Emily’s disability and improve or enhance her motor and cognitive functioning. This quest brought them to Nova Cells Institute of Mexico (NCIM) in December 2011 and culminated in Emily’s being treated with pure umbilical cord and Wharton’s Jelly derived stem cells plus “Beacon Factor”, i.e., a proprietary hypoallergenic combination of peptides and cytokines that helps stem cells rapidly home in on and anchor to target tissues (NCIM’s Beacon Factor has been used by NCIM on all types of neurological diseases such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, and Parkinson’s disease with great success).

Emily’s response to her NCIM treatment began 2 months following her treatment and is ably captured in this update from her parents that came in this month (May 2012):

Our daughter Emily had a stem cell treatment through NCIM when she was 10 years old.  We set up everything through (NCIM patient educator and care facilitator) Grace and she was wonderful to us.  She was so attentive and loving and I really felt a bond with her over the phone and felt like I knew her and could really feel her excitement for helping kids!

When we got to San Diego, Grace and (her biochemist husband) Abel picked us up and personally escorted us to Mexico!  Traveling to another country can be a bit overwhelming but they made us feel at ease and we really felt like they cared about our little Emily and they were very thorough in explaining how they get the stem cells and treat them and the desired outcome.

Since the treatment we have seen some wonderful changes in our daughter.  Emily is non-verbal and cannot walk without assistance.  Prior to her stem cell treatment she could not ask for help or communicate her needs effectively even with a speech output device. Now, just 5 months after treatment, she clearly articulates her needs using the device and she has also learned how to use an iPad for communication as well.

She has also shown a new level of maturity.  She has demonstrated through testing that she can read well over 200 words.  She is also able to build sentences and follow along with academic activities using her speech device.  Her temperament has also changed.  She used to break down easily and get very frustrated and she was unable to control her emotions.  Now she seems to be more patient and confident in herself.

We feel that these changes are just the beginning and we are hopeful and excited to see even more good things coming from her treatment!
